Operation Rescue has concluded an exhaustive survey of abortion clinics in the U.S. and is pleased to announce that it has documented a record number of abortion clinic closures in 2013, during which time 87 surgical abortion clinics halted abortions.
Spain’s conservative government has approved an abortion law that rolls back current legislation permitting the procedure without restrictions until the 14th week.
The law needs to pass the Cortes, but since the Popular Party has a majority there, it’s pretty much a done deal. Of particular interest is that the law will once again require 16 and 17-year-old girls to get their parents’ permission.
It’s easy to grow despondent when looking at the culture war and seeing how many things are now considered normal that were regarded as unspeakably obscene and even insane just forty years ago. As Jerry Pournelle reminds us, though, despair is a sin. The bad guys don’t always win and the good guys don’t always lose. If the Spaniards can roll back the Culture of Death, so can we – one shuttered abortion clinic at a time.
